A clip of late Beatles producer George Martin recalling how he met the Beatles is making the rounds online – and hitting us right in the feels. The video was posted to social media by his son Giles – with Martin telling his granddaughter about meeting the Fab Four for the first time. Hilariously, Martin says the first time he heard the band “It was okay, but it wasn’t brilliant”. He said “the magic bit came when I started to get to know them because they were terribly good people”.

I don’t normally share anything personal but this my dad from a while back explaining to my daughter he signed the Beatles. Ordinary people do extraordinary things. Great decisions are made for the simplest reasons. “I figured if I like them this much other people might too” ❤️ pic.twitter.com/j4bf96b4zS

Martin produced every Beatles album and can be seen in the recent documentary Get Back. He died in 2016 at the age of 90.
Would the Beatles have still become superstars without Martin producing them?
